The Dow plunged 54% in 18 months between 2008 and 2009, the largest since the Great Depression of 1929.  We have come a long way since the Federal Reserve and the Treasury had to step in and save the banking system from going under. FEI Boston’s panel of senior investment strategists will take a look back at the decade following the financial meltdown and will discuss current trends and sign posts that may indicate which direction the market will go.


The panel will discuss:

·         Whether the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and § 619 (the Volcker Rule) make us more secure.

·         Market risks related to central banks, low interest rates, and massive global debt levels.

·         Risks associated with passive investing.

·         The impact China tariffs may have on the global economy.

·         Quant driven or computer driven algorithms, and the risks—such as the “Flash Crash” of May 2010—of money being managed by machines.

·         The impact artificial intelligence (AI) may have on the global workforce, and if the market has priced for this.

·         Whether the record low market performance in the fourth quarter of 2018 indicates a risk of recession.

·         Where the US stands in the current business cycle.

·         And, what keeps them awake at night!

·        The panel also looks forward to answering questions from the audience of FEI-Boston!
